ERD won't apply changes

Trying to reset password on windows vista,

I booted with ERD and change the password with the locksmith , but it didn't work.

When I loaded the ERD again it said that some changes are made and after reset it will apply . I did reset a couple of times still isn't working.

How can I reset the password?
